Have worked more than anybody in their 20s should work and now I want a mid career-break way before mid-career! I'm planning an extended RTW trip for up to 2 years starting in June 2014 that will cover 30+ countries. I've got a general route planned, but definitely open to suggestions and being spontaneous too.

Looking for adventurous travel partners as well as interesting people to meet up with for legs of the trip. Will be hitting up major cities, small towns, as well as challenging terrains. Will mainly stay at hostels to extend my trip for as long as possible.

I plan to start at the World Cup in Brazil in June 2014 then complete SA and head westward to South Pacific, Australia/NZ, all over Asia, some Middle East, and northern Africa before heading back to the USA.

If interested in learning more, just shoot me a message! Happy Travels!

Dave11 I'm following the US team for the final two group stage matches; Manaus and then Recife. I'll be leaving Recife on June 27 and then not sure where to go either in Brazil or maybe another country (since all the hostels / hotels in Brazil are crazy expensive. I'm thinking about maybe heading to Argentina (plans are still up in the air). Would love to find some people to travel with. What are people doing after the Group Stage in late June / early July?

Dave11 I was planning a RTW trip in 2014-15 but decided to slow travel instead through a few South American countries. I'm living in Cuenca, Ecuador through June, so if you stop through (beautiful city), you are welcome to couchsurf! Then I'll probably move to Medellin, Colombia in September after going to the World Cup.

Dave11 Trip sounds sweet. I'm from the States too but I'm living in Cuenca, Ecuador until early June 2014 before heading to Brazil to follow the US team's group stage matches. Then, after the final group stage match on June 27, I'm looking to meet up with others to do more traveling. Would love to find out your travel plans and maybe link up, perhaps at different times during your trip. If you do come to Cuenca before the end of May, then let me know too since I live here.

Dave11 I plan on being in Recife, Brazil until June 27th for the final US group stage match and then was planning on either checking out more of Brazil (except hostels / hotels are crazy expensive for the World Cup) or perhaps head to Argentina or Chile in July. I am more interested in hearing about your plans. Always great to find others to travel with.

Dave11 Hey Ruthie - I'm doing something pretty similar so it's good to know I'm not the only crazy one out there! I'll be doing an RTW for up to 2 years starting in May/June 2014 in South America and might be in the Australia/NZ area by March 2015 (westward direction from SA). What areas of the world you looking to explore?
Ruthie
Ruthie Hi Dave, Plans are pretty up in the air at the moment, was probably thinking South America for 4 - 5 Months, North America for 2, Africa for 2 - 3, UK for 2, Europe for 3 and Asia for another 4 - 5 ish. Just depends on the funding situation, :P Its the reason it is so far in the future, just need the time to get the money together.
